Edward Gorey Book Covers

lucky-jim-kingsley-amis-edward-goreyI love Edward Gorey (and Ogdred Weary, and Wardore Edgy, etc…). His stories and illustrations are such a wonderful mix of the macabre and the innocent, the grim and the lovely. He was doing it right long before Tim Burton ever dreamed up Oyster Boy.

Someone on Flickr, much to my joy, has compiled and shared a collection of images of Edward Gorey book covers that is absolutely worth having a look through. But be careful – some are so bleak and haunting and twisted, ladies may have a fit of the vapors and fall into a swoon.
